Great night out

Splendid theatre great for music events, drama or comedy. Not too large so the audience can still be intimate with the performers. Well worth a visit.

The venue itself is very impressive however this is totally overshadowed by the megalomaniac security staff.

A great place to see concerts, every seat in the house has a great view, and very comfortable. Drinks are not allowed into a show though, the big difference between the Waterfront and the Odyssey Arena, so intervals at the bar can be chaos with having to get your drink necked before the show starts again!!

My wife and I attended the Bryan Ferry concert in the Waterfront Hall last Wednesday evening and while we enjoyed the concert very much (it was Bryan Ferry after all ) I would compliment the staff hosting the evening as they were absolutely brilliant - professional, courteous and really made us feel very welcome. Several bars for a no queue... More

I have attended concerts and shows on countless occasions and have enjoyed most of them. This visit was to see The Three Degrees And Hot Chocolate do there thing. The first on stage were the 3 Degrees and from the start the crowd were in the palm of their hands even when the trio thought they were in Dublin and... More

Enjoyed a pre show drink in the up stairs lounge and then enjoyed a wonderful seat location and great show ie Brendan Coles Night To Remember!

I visit events in the Warefront Hall reasonably often. My most recent visit was to the opera. The concert halls are put to many uses which is great for Belfast. The bar on the first floor ' Bar One' has fab views of city and the river Lagan. The drink is reasonably priced ( a mini bottle Sauvignon blanc £4.40)... More

Have been a few times to watch comedy shows including Jimmy Carr. Comfortable seating with good views & acoustics from the stage. Nice bar area with views over Belfast. Friendly & efficient staff. Car-parking in Hilton multi-story beside the venue.

I have been to the Waterfront many times. Every time I have got an upstairs (comfortable) seat and have thoroughly enjoyed my experience. However when I was putting on a performance in March, I found it extremely difficult to navigate back-stage. It is designed so that there is one circular corridor per floor with nearly ALL the dressing rooms coming... More
